    2010 Mary SS and WhiteBrothers Rock Solid fork

    LOVING my new Mary SS,, Enjoying the heck outa this ride.. Ya, the hills take on new meaning when on a single speed, but the effort is so worth it.


    As usual, I just can't help but improve upon design, So, my question is on the White Brothers Rock Solid Fork.. they offer 3 different lengths,,465mm, 445mm, and 425mm models available , what is the length that would match the stock length of the Mary?



    Anyone else go this option on the 2010? Feedback of any sort would be helpful. Thanks.

    would love to help, but i sold off my mary's fork... wouldn't it just be a matter of measuring the axle to crown length on your current fork?

    The crown to axle length on the stock Mary SS fork is 475mm. You'll likely be OK with the 465mm option...it might steepen your head angle just a little bit, though.

    Thats about 3/8" difference,, Hmmmm, I'm out on the limb on this,, If the head angle steepen's, that would translate into (Slower) steering or ((quicker / twitchy) steering?

    A steeper head angle will yield faster steering.
